Eye to Eye

I was in the eye of the storm….
I traveled to Florida for
a family gathering last
week and Hurricane Matthew
hit the Florida coast where
I was staying.

Luckily for us, we had
relatives inland so we
were able to go there
and we were safe.
But, the fierceness
leaves me without words.

Many people turned to God
in the midst of the storm.
I for one, cried out to God
let my family be safe!!
Once again, I have to
ask myself,
do I just turn to God in the crisis
or do I turn to God in
the everyday-ness?
What about you?
I hope you don’t have to
Live through a hurricane
to turn to God!

Change is in the air

October is here,
change is here,
we move from heat and
humidity to cooler
days and nights.
For us, change is
It is the Pascal
Mystery all over again.
We live, we die and
we are born again.
We could say this happens
daily, monthly and
especially with the seasons.
Are we open to the changes
in our lives?
Sometimes change is
difficult, it takes
us where we don’t want
to go…..
Go there with God.

What do we do with disappointment?
Do we give it to God?
I recently held an event and
no one showed up for it !
I was very disappointed!
I could have sworn off
offering anything more
for young adults, but,
I didn’t.
I looked at the situation
I gave it to God
and I resolved to
work in collaboration
with young adults. 
I will do it differently this time.
I am learning as I go along,
and I hope that all of you
when you have something
that disappoints you
You can give it to God
and learn to do it differently

Gathering to Reflect

We come together for different activities to pray together, to play together, to sit in silence before the altar. We are so busy in our lives that sometimes we just have to get away and let it go. I am inviting you to a time to get away and listen to God’s call in your life.

We will be having an evening of reflection here at the Motherhouse of the Sisters of St. Agnes.
Wednesday, September 14
6:30-8:30 pm 
320 County Road K
Fond du Lac, WI 54937

I know this is an advertisement and I don’t usually do that in this mode, however, we want to offer you a time to listen, pray and socialize and I couldn’t be remiss to invite you!!!

God’s Perfect 10

The world is all about the Olympics these days
but, as Catholic Christians we have
our own Olympics—the presence of God
in our lives….

In Psalm 139 we read:
Lord, you have probed me, you know me:
you know when I sit and when I stand
you understand my thoughts from afar…
you formed my inmost being;
you knit me in my mother’s womb.

God had us in God’s eyes before
we were born.
How awesome is that?
God strikes a perfect 10
throughout our lives.
And all we have to do is
Enjoy it.

The song goes like this:
“I have loved you with an everlasting love
I have loved you and you are mine.”

That, my friend, is a perfect 10!!!
